Ahhh, Strategic Workforce Planning, may I please call you by another name?
Ahhh, Strategic Workforce Planning, may I please call you by another name? After explaining you for so long, I feel the time has come my misunderstood friend. You need a rebrand. You see, it’s not you – it’s them. People just don’t get who you really are. Some think you are rostering, workforce management, project management, budget planning or Future of Work projections. Others believe they can put their fingers in the air and qualitatively guesstimate the future size and shape of their workforce, and call it by your name. Many think you are too hard, that you are just not worth it or that you are some passing fad, like fidget-spinners. I know that you are the key to connecting people to organization purpose, that you are the true path to transformation and organizational effectiveness. The market just doesn’t get you. They just don’t DO you.
